Storm Ride

Ride is just exactly what it is advertised, and what I was looking for. Super controllable ball that lets me square up like I would with urethane, but gives me a bit more continuation. First ball I have thrown in some time that lets me utilize the hold area of a house shot.

This is not a Tropical Breeze...

Drilled 78º x 3.75" x 46º
17MPH / 360RPM / low tilt

First few games were on a burnt short juniors pattern. Layout was clearly too strong in the mid-lane on this lane condition: it hooked early on most shots and hit flat when I managed to get it to the pocket.

38' medium-volume THS was much better. The ball was very clean through front with very smooth, strong and continuous backend motion. No out of bounds or roll-out behavior was observed during the three game set.
The ball hits very hard, even after the lanes begin to break down. I left four 9 pins in two games with it.

I would recommend pin over the bridge (~5" pin>PAP) if you bowl on short patterns, but for medium conditions, a strong pin>PAP and medium VAL angle works very nicely.

3/9/2016 - By

Question: What is a modified centripetal core?

3/18/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: A modified centripetal core is the core that Storm uses when the ball gets to the lower weights to give you a similar read to the heavier weight balls.

3/30/2016 - By

Question: Can this ball be used if you bowl straight lines (no hook)?

4/22/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hi Jay! While the Storm Ride is not a big hooking ball the core and coverstock are designed to offer hook. You might be able to work with your driller to have this ball drilled in a way that would produce little to no hook, but that is not what the ball was designed to do.

4/22/2016 - By

Question: How should this be dril

5/2/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello, you may check with the person who will be drilling this ball for you prior to ordering to determine which layout and specs they would use to get you the desired reaction.
